Are you trying to find out the difference between guardianship and conservatorship? Southern California probate attorney Phillip Lemmons APC explains the distinction in this video.
Although a guardian and conservator have similar duties in being responsible for another person, they also have different roles. Guardianship is different than a conservatorship because guardianship involves minors. In California, the courts make a distinction between the two. Guardians care for minors, while conservators care for adults. With a guardianship, a person is responsible for taking care of the child, providing clothing, food, shelter, education, medical care and other basic needs. A guardian may also manage the child’s finances until he or she reaches 18 years of age.
